Police have released an e-fit of a man sought in connection with a robbery in Horsham.



About 1am on Wednesday 15 May, officers on patrol were flagged down by a member of the public who claimed he had just been robbed at knife point in Carfax.

An unknown man is reported to have approached him at a cash machine and demanded money. When the victim refused, he was followed to his car, where the suspect brandished a knife.
